Does Melania Trump need to move to the White House? | The Tylt
More than half a million people have signed a Change.org petition demanding Melania Trump pay for the cost of her security detail in New York City. The First Lady's defenders say she is just living in the Trump Tower until her son finishes the school year. Angry petitioners say taxpayers should not have to shell out as much as $500,000 daily to guard her. Critics argue U.S. citizens pay for the White House and its security; the president's family should live there. Does Melania need to move?
Does Melania Trump need to move to the White House?
On top of the staggering sum it takes to provide security for the First Lady in New York, reports indicate she may not move to the White House at all. Yes, it sucks for her kid to have to switch schools, but the price of not doing so is a completely unfair expense to impose on taxpayers. Sasha and Malia did it, Barron can too. The First Family needs to put America first.
The First Lady's defenders argue she is just staying in New York for a few more months, and is only doing so for the well-being of her 11-year-old. Give her a break!
People are seriously fired up about the cost of Melania's choice to stay in New York. Why doesn't billionaire Trump pay for it?
Melania's White House portrait is beautiful and will make an excellent conversation piece if she ever happens to visit the White House.— Nick Amadeus (@NickAmadeus) April 3, 2017
Others say she's taking a lot of heat just for trying to be a good parent, which is unfair.
